Its Giveaway time again!!

Well its been a long time since i did anything on my blog let alone a giveaway, to tell the truth i never really got into the swing of blogging. I think it comes generally a bit more naturally to some more than others. I tend to be more active on my Facebook page but you cant do giveaway on there so i have had to take up my blog again!!!
I realised the other day that i have let quite a few milestones slip past fairly unnoticed, back in August i had been creating with my little business for 2 years and then in February i hit 300 sales in my Etsy shop and this week i hit 800 "likes" on my Facebook page!!!. Realising this and the beautiful weather we have been having made me feel in a giveaway mood!!
So with this giveaway i am killing 2 birds with one stone, I'm giving you guys something free and you are helping me decide which fabric to make my next slippers in.
Here is the album of fabrics that I'm choosing between: be in with the chance to win a free pair of adult slippers in one of the new fabrics which you can pick from, here is what you have to do:
1.) Got to the album linked above and take a look at the fabrics there and then come back and leave a comment on this post telling me which fabric you would choose for slippers.
For a few extra entries you could also do the following:
2.)Post this giveaway somewhere
else for example your own blog/twitter/Facebook etc and leave a link for me to
If you could leave a separate comment for each entry it would make it much easier for me to sort out!
The contest will end at 11:59 PM on April 9th. Winner will be chosen at random. Be sure you have a way for me to get in touch with you, either by leaving your email address in the
comments or have a link in your profile. I will then contact the winner to confirm their fabric choice and size.

What a fab morning!!

I just needed to share my fabulous morning with you all!!

Anyone that knows me/reads my blog/looks at my facebook page will know that I am absolutely obsessed with fabric especially the buying of it and choosing it. So you can probably understand my frustration in living in the Uk as most of the fabrics I love are from the US, this means that it costs a lot to post them and i tend to have to wait a few weeks for it to arrive! The spoilt child in me does not appreciate the waiting!!!

So you can imagine my surprise when the postman rang my doorbell this morning and there was my parcel all the way from the USA (SkyeReveFabrics) which i only ordered 4 days ago!! I was sooooooooooooooo happy!!
The fabric is soooooooooooo beautiful as well i can not wait to use it, and i have a very exciting custom order that i will start on Monday which i can use it for Yippeeee!!

Also to top off the beautiful morning my lovely little monster slept in till nearly 10 o'clock!! As anyone with kiddies will confirm this is nothing short of a miracle! So my household is full of very happy people today!!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend!!!

Etsy Silly Sale!!!

This week from today I am taking part in the Uk Silly Sale with a lot of other fabulous Etsy shops!! So instead of showing you my sale items i have been doing a little browsing, (possibly a little shopping later!!) to find you some absolutely fabulous sale goods! Trust me they are fabulous!!

Take a look at these fabulous prints by Heidiadnum. Free shipping on all prints and also some beautiful bunting that they sell!!!

Next is another fab shop called Wudwerx! They sell all kinds of Bird feeder and wooden bug boxes and bird houses! They have some great offers on. I particularly love this toast bird feeder and think it would look fantastic in my garden!!

I completely fell in love this bangle from QuercusSilver, it is beautiful and a complete bargain now its in the sale!!

Because i love cupcakes especially ones that look too pretty to eat, take a look at millalove for amazing cupcake toppers!!

And last but by no means least these gorgeous greetings cards!!! I am such a card hoarder so these are right up my street!!! Take a look at KitszieG for more cards, postcards and prints!!!

Let me know if you buy any bargains today!!!

I'm Back!!!!

Well I know it has been some time since i last did a blog post but life has been a little crazy recently!!
Firstly i had a very exciting request from Sew Hip magazine to do a piece on my adult slippers so that was very exciting, a lot of hard work but very exciting. Writing was never my strength at school so trying to write instructions that someone else had to follow proved to be quite a challenge!!

Then after that my little Etsy shop went absolutely mental with wholesale orders, I had 5 all in a very short space of time and have since been churning out booties, burp cloths and purses by the dozen like a machine. Bed time went out the window and my house looks like a fabric shop has been sick all over it but it was definitely worth it and an excellent learning curve. I learnt that making items by bulk is much quicker and so I think i will be doing that in regards to my shop from now on, I also learnt I need to be more realistic with the times I quote people and remember that there is only me sewing and I have a 2 year old that demands and deserves the larger share of my attention!! So with all that my poor little Etsy shop has been very neglected and has rapidly dropped from nearly 60 listings to 40!!

In between all of those things it was mine and hubby's 6th wedding anniversary!! Time really does fly when you are having fun! So we managed to squeeze in a week off, unfortunately the fabulous abroad holiday was off the cards this year so we went out and about to lots of fun kiddies things in the Uk. The little monster got completely spoilt all week with presents and sweeties and days out, generally just a fab family week!!

So now i have finally got my world slightly back to normal I can start to focus on rebuilding my stock so expect lots of new things over the next few weeks and then i am going to take a look at the amazingly large list of ideas you all had when i had my giveaway all those weeks ago!!
Here is just some of the ideas you guys had:
*Unisex items
*Boys Booties
*Bigger range of fabric for the adult slippers
*Men's Slippers
*Matching hats
*Bright coloured plain fabrics
*Smaller purser (credit card size)
*Larger purses
*More toddler sizes
*Baby Blankets
*Car seat Tents
*Children's sizes
*hair bows
*Clothes - dresses etc

On top of all this I am also aiming to phase out the made to order items, I think as a customer having to wait for something to be made is sometimes off putting and as the person making them life is easier if I'm just selling what i have!!

And last but not least i just had to share with you all this absolutely amazing notepad i found whilst browsing the Etsy forums today:

I am absolutely in love it and may well be purchasing one in the near future when i have some spare pennies and a bit more time to choose. They are soooo beautiful and completely sensible and practical as well, with great wooden covers so you always have something solid to rest on, plus they would look fab out on display on your desk as well!!! Even better you never have to throw it away as you can refill them!! Love it!!! Check out the whole shop here at Timeforteame

Well that's about all from me and my little catch up today. Hopefully i will be back soon with more things i find on one of my many shopping trips!!!
